STUDIO CITY, Calif., Oct. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Consumers insured by SeeChange Health Insurance (www.SeeChangeHealth.com), the leader in value-based benefit design solutions for small and mid-sized employers, will gain access to cutting-edge health management and treatment decision support tools through a new partnership with Emmi Solutions (www.emmisolutions.com). Emmi Solutions, a pioneer in patient engagement technology, provides interactive online programs that empower patients to take action around a health care event or condition.
Both SeeChange Health and Emmi Solutions encourage members to be more involved with their health and wellness in order to make smarter health care decisions. "This partnership with Emmi Solutions gives our members powerful educational tools to manage health conditions outside of the clinical setting," said Martin Watson, CEO of SeeChange Health. "It's another step in our efforts to make it easy for members to engage in and better manage their health, ultimately improving their health and reducing medical costs over the long-term."
Emmi Solutions' multimedia programs give members the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to take a central role in the management of a chronic condition such as asthma, diabetes, or heart disease. They are also given the tools needed to participate in important treatment decisions in partnership with their physician, a process known as shared decision-making. "Healthcare providers, employers and insurers are focused on finding solutions that improve quality while also reducing costs but they have historically struggled with member engagement," said Bob Tavares, Vice President of Care Management at Emmi Solutions. "SeeChange Health is changing the game by making it easy and enjoyable for members to become involved in their health while also incentivizing them to do so. We are pleased to be partnering with a company that shares our values around empowering patients."
